Patterns continue

My fascination with patterns continues.  Now that summer has arrived and city snow (dirty or otherwise) has disappeared, I’m now captivated by other kinds of patterns, specifically rocks, as in rock walls.

Recently at Wave Hill I happened to notice an interesting rock wall along the back of Glyndor House.  I’d been pushed out of my normal Wave Hill haunts by the construction going on at Wave Hill House. So the rock wall was a nice discovery.

First, I did a quick watercolor sketch.

Then I tried an ink and watercolor sketch of a smaller section of the wall to try and capture the shapes of the rocks and the spaces between them.

They are both semi abstract (or semi realistic) and I’m not sure which I like better.
